The Rivers State Commissioner for Housing, Gift Worlu has resigned from the cabinet of Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

Worlu’s resignation comes just as the state Commisiskner for Education, Professor Prince Chinedu Mmom also tendered his resignation from the Fubara cabinet.

In a letter addressed to Governor Fubara, through the Secretary to the State Government, Tammy Danagogo, Worlu cited a “toxic” work environment, as well as the alleged attempt to merge the executive and legislative arms of government as his reason for resignation.

His letter states, “I write to formally resign my appointment as the Honourable Commissioner of Housing.

“One of the most difficult decision in my life yet, it is precipitated by the toxic atmosphere that has characterised our working relationship, especially the smouldering arbitrariness of decisions and actions, induding the attempt to fuse the executive and legislative arms of government in Rivers State.

“I thank you for the opportunity to serve in your government and wish you the best as you continue to steer the ship of state.

”Kindly accept assurances of my esteemed regards.”
